Good question---- I would also be interested in the answer.

I am on LDN and I have a glass of wine at dinner - my doctor did not warn me against it, but then, maybe I never asked him.

rnb - I found this on the LDN website

Can LDN be taken with other medications such as tranquilizers or chemotherapy? How about interactions with alcohol or tobacco?
LDN can be taken along with any other medication or substance, so long as it is not narcotic-containing. Naltrexone is a pure opioid antagonist and it will block the action of narcotics. Some examples of narcotic-containing drugs are Ultram, morphine, Percocet, Duragesic patch and any codeine-containing medication.

Not good nor bad, alchool reduces glutathione levels which is body's antioxidant affecting negatively MS in general and if you take it close or after your LDN it may interferes with it cause it is similar to drugs.
On the other hand two glasses of red wine are a good source of resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant probably better than pycnogenol, gingko biloba etc so it's up to personal preferences.
